i have been able to change the other stats, but when i change the hull strength in the pack file manager, even though i save the changes, in game the changes are not there.

make sure that when you save, DO NOT use the file-save option, just exit out and save changes when prompted. a weird bug, but it wont save any other way (at least, no one i have heard from has been able to save it that way

firepower comes from the guns on the ship giving a ship a bigger gun give more firepower to the ship that is the only way i have been apel to see a higher firepower on the ships but it do work both ways so doing to a grupe that have ships specifik to that grupe helps like England - Spain and so on

Well thx for your responses, i'll try that way, saving when exiting. I have been messing with the patch.pack and found out a lot of interesting things. As for new modders there are a lot of helpful tutorials on (twcenter.net. It takes some time but just be patient and read through the tutorials. They can explain it a lot better than i can.

just got some more info, which was leaving me to believe i was right, i wasn't doing anything wrong, the 3rd column in the packfile manager is only a summation, the hull strength is made up of almost 22 different smaller values that make up the whole. So if you change hull strength total the game will still read your sail rigging and gun ports as their original values. No one on twcenter knows what each of these values represent.

good luck
I followed this and i now have all my ships at 50000 in hullstrenght.
